pore minimizing

pore minimizing

i use this product everyday around my nose, chin, forehead…it blends in perfectly, is very light, yet covers and actually does blur my pores…makes my skin look great

- Beautifiedyou User

it really does minimise pores with no effort or stressing it is sitting in them, it reduces my shine completely and controls it even when i'm swearing buckets in this heat, goes on like silk with fingers no brush needed and protects against the sun

- Lookfantastic User

blendability

blends well

i'ts a mousse type product and spreads very well with the fingertips

- Escentual User

the coverage is excellent and the mousse-like texture makes it very easy to apply and blend into my neck

- Escentual User

texture

smooth

- it's a mousse that feels like suede on oily skin- it seems to be quite long lasting (for me at least)- other make up goes on top of it very well and stays- it keeps my skin from getting oily quite well (but may dry out people with dryer skin)negatives:- i can see it being very fair for some people, for me it's perfect (first ever foundation/bb cream that matches my skin perfectly)- it doesn't enhance large pores, but it also doesn't do anything to hide them (use a decent primer and no problems here either)- it does lie on top of dry patches in case you have any, so definitely use a moisturizer on those first (

- Escentual User

my only slight complaint is that although the moussey texture is gorgeous and smoothes onto the skin beautifully, it does sort of sputter out of the tube and has caught me out

- Escentual User

staying power

longlasting

wore this all day and all night til 4am - without any face powder - not hint of shine on my face at all

- Escentual User

it's nice and light but gives good, long-lasting coverage

- Boots User

weight

lightweight

it's super lightweight, easy to blend and it blurs the appearance of pores really well

- Lookfantastic User

okay let's make a list of things i love about this:- it's suuuper light-weight

- Escentual User

hydration

drying

i have very oily skin but i still felt it necessary to apply a rich moisturiser over dry patches, like around my nostrils or fading blemishes because the mousse texture clings to these places

- Escentual User

it could be that it's really effective at sucking up oil; i tried it with a really moisturizing primer, but at the end of the day, it kind of emphasized the fine lines by my nose

- Target User

coverage

medium coverage

it really does blur large pores, and gives light to medium coverage to even out skintone without looking "made up" - with spf

- Lookfantastic User

it's also great at keeping shine away, and gives a light to medium coverage

separates over the course of the day

The light/medium shade suits my skin well, yet there is a clear lack of darker shades which is extremely disappointing. this is the darkest shade and i am still only on the 'light' end of 'light-medium'. However, the coverage is very good for a bb cream and covered my hyperpigmented acne scars well, it smoothed out my pores very well and it also blended easily and felt light on the skin. I have very oily skin but i still felt it necessary to apply a rich moisturiser over dry patches, like around my nostrils or fading blemishes because the mousse texture clings to these places. although it is marketed as an oil-control product, it gets oily on me just as easily as an oilier foundation would - which is what i was trying to combat! even worse, it separates into unattractive little specks around my chin and mouth and no setting powder i try combats this. this is my worst pet peeve when it comes to bb creams or foundations. Overall, coverage is good, looks good on the skin until about an hour, when oil begins to break through, and then another hour later it will start to separate very unpleasantly. « less

Quick, easy and effective for a lazy Mum

I'm a Mum and I'm busy and scatty and I don't really bother with foundation apart from on special occasions. I have combination/oily skin with spots sometimes (especially in the summer) and I'm 50 this year, so I have some redness and broken capillaries on my chin and cheeks and around my nose, along with some hyperpigmentation around the edges of my face. (Writing it down makes me think I really ought to wear a full face of full cover foundation every day!)Anyway, I'm too busy and lazy to bother putting a full face on every day; usually I get by with brushing my hair and putting on some mascara. But this was like using moisturiser, so it's easy. It feels very odd at first because it's a mousse that comes out of a tube, so the texture feels a bit dry or pasty, but it has lots of silicone in it so it slips across the skin easily and blends out smoothly.It has adaptable technology, so as you start to rub it in, there is a darker and more tanned moment as the pigment releases, but it blends in well and gives a nice even light coverage. I have Light/Medium and it's great on my yellow-toned pale skin, even now in midwinter.The finish is lovely and velvety without being chalkily matte, and I can still see my freckles through the coverage but my redness is taken right down. I love the effect it gives me - I look like myself but better. « less

Great for oily skin

I really like this product! It's super lightweight, easy to blend and it blurs the appearance of pores really well. It's also great at keeping shine away, and gives a light to medium coverage.

Best foundation ever

I was introduced to this foundation by a beauty expert for the Vichy line. I'm obsessed and will use it always.. ! First of all, her skin was flawless, it looked like an airbrushed photo in a magazine. I can honestly say this has the ability to help you look 5-10 years younger. It helps your skin with the moisture balance to help with oiliness in the T-zone, or sweat. It's great for combination skin or skin that breaks out from excess oil, I have extremely sensitive skin that gets dry in the winter, and this year I started breaking out n my T-zone, so I tried this and right away it felt so light, smooth, and comfortable on my skin. It also lasts all day long w/ a full coverage no makeup look

I love love love this

I've been using this in combination with the La Roche-Posay Effaclar 3-Step Anti-Blemish System (just in case). I have actually bought 2 of these over the last weeks (thought I lost one and there was NO hesitation to buy a new one).Now to the point...This stuff is NOT full coverage, but to be honest, it's a BB cream - I didn't buy a BB cream to get full coverage. That's what I expect of a foundation.Okay let's make a list of things I love about this:- It's suuuper light-weight.- It's a mousse that feels like suede on oily skin- It seems to be quite long lasting (for me at least)- Other make up goes on top of it very well and stays- It keeps my skin from getting oily quite well (but may dry out people with dryer skin)Negatives:- I can see it being very fair for some people, for me it's perfect (First ever foundation/BB cream that matches my skin perfectly)- It doesn't enhance large pores, but it also doesn't do anything to hide them (use a decent primer and no problems here either)- It does lie on top of dry patches in case you have any, so definitely use a moisturizer on those first (!!!)Overall: I love this product, I have always had huge problems with the oily parts of my skin with foundation as it (MAC foundations usually) has always kind of lain on top of my skin and felt like a second or even third skin. They were more covering but for what price. This stuff just glides on and I don't feel like I'm wearing make up at all (Like whoops I forgot I'm wearing makeup and I just smudged it all up.. yay.)I think that for people with combination or just oily skin this is a great BB cream when you feel like you don't need full coverage or just wanna wear something at home in case the post man comes by.. It blends super well and because on me it's exactly my skin color it hides the redness that I have and doesn't look like I'm wearing make up. My partner came home the other day and immediately told me how beautiful my skin looked without makeup.. Ah, men. <3 « less

I tried it but returned it because I felt like it did not absorb into the skin and just sat on the surface, making my face feel/look shiny. Coverage isn’t all that great either. I prefer the la roche posay bb cream instead. I think it’s 10x better and a little goes a long way!
